After reading the first book, I just could'nt wait for the second book to be printed.....and I'm in the 23rd chapter right now....and I heard the 3rd book wont be out till jan 2012...ugh!! I've soooo ENJOYED reading both of judy's books and I LOVE THEM. She keeps me interested from COVER 2 COVER.
Lilly is so confused. She is torn between two men. Her current husband Max and his brother Hector.
Judy Serrano's first book in the series, (Easter's Lilly) Lilly married Diego Montiago the head of Montiago crime family for protection against his older brother Jorge who wants her killed. While Diego ignores her most of their marriage, she falls in love with her bodyguard, which is Diego's brother Max.
Now in the Series ( Brother Number 3), Lilly is married to Max, and bother number 3 Hector, is protecting Lilly. Max has an affair and Lilly turns to Hector for comfort.
In the mean time with Jorge in prison, Lilly feels a little safer until Polo comes into the picture, Polo works for Jorge. So once again Lilly's life is in danger. Johnny, Lilly's first lover, Diego Lilly's first husband, Max Lilly's second husband and Hector have all sworn to protect her and will do what ever it takes, even kill.
Judy Serrano has done it again. There are so many twists and turns your head will spin trying to figure out what will happen next. I just don't know what to think about Lilly. She has grabbed the hearts of so many men. What is it that makes them so attracted to her? These are not your every day run of the mill guys. These are drug dealers, and killers, but when it comes to Lilly you get to see their gentle softer side. Lilly may make honest men out of these guys yet.
As for the author Judy Serrano I can't wait to read her next book. She writes with such passion and enthusiasm with lots of twists and turns, and full of adventure and excitement. She is such an amazing writer, you never know what to expect.
This was an amazing book! Perhaps it's because I now know the characters, but for whatever reason I totally enjoyed this book! Serrano had my attention within the first few pages, which start off just as the last book ended (So I'd advise you to read Easter's Lilly first!) and held it the entire time. I only laid it down long enough to sleep for the night! Needless to say, I'm psyched to be able to review the third book in the series as well!
I totally enjoyed Brother Number Three at any rate! The brotherhood is back, and their hijinks are much similar to the previous book, though I thought they acted much more like grown ups in Brother Number Three. I am now deeply enthralled with Lilly and I'm officially goign to say that I am on Team Max. Baby Girl and Daddy all the way! Anyways, Serrano really hit the mark with me on this book, which is a little more spicy than is Eater's Lilly, much more satisfying, and highly romantic.
I was given this book for my honest opinion, no other compensation was received. This review only reflects my personal opinion.
This book picks up exactly where Easter's Lilly leaves off.
Lilly Lilly Lilly...wow what can I say about her that won't give away spoilers. Hmmm I really don't know. *sigh* That girl so confuses sexually attraction for love.
What is it about Lilly that makes the men in her life turn into big puddles of Jello? She has the 3 brothers just about ready to literally kill each other over her. Don't forget about her oldest son's dad Johnny either.
There is no shortage of enemies for the Montiago brothers that's for sure!
It's hard to tell who is really the bad guys and who is undercover with the FBI most of the time. It's always such a fine line.
I highly recommend this book series to everyone. I read this one again in a day. You don't want to put it down. I get sucked into the story from page 1.
Now I must be off to read the 3rd and final installment. Forget the fact it's done due to be read til April! I read this one on Feb. 14 and it's not due to be read until March 20. The books are just that good!
I read the first book in this series, Easter's Lilly, and loved it. I have always had a love/hate relationship with books that end in a way that make you want to call, text,email....whatever the author and find out what happens because you can't wait to read the next book in the series. Judy Serrano writes in a way that leaves you hanging.....and that's a good thing in my book reading world!
In Brother Number 3 Lilly is married to Max, brother #2, after divorcing Diego, brother number 1, and is falling for Hector...you guessed it, brother number 3. I want Lilly to be with Max but you never know what this girl is going to do. She seems to want to be with the one who she spends the most time with. Truthfully I don't even know if I like Lilly or not but I do know I love Judy Serrano's series. I always say if you really like or dislike a character in a book it's because of great writing and Judy Serrano is a great writer!
If you haven't read this series yet I recommend you get Easters Lilly and start it.
